452 | “We made $400k tax free from Reno’s!”: How this TV Popstar Built His Flourishing Portfolio – Chat with Jason Bird

Meet Jason Bird, today’s super special Winter Series guest. Although, this probably isn’t the FIRST time you’ve ever heard of him because today’s guest is also… 

Former Scandal’us pop star from the 90’s hit show Pop Stars!! 😮  

Yep. We got to sit down with an incredibly humble and inspiring former pop star with a truly mind-blowing story to share. 

We’ll be starting right back at the beginning, before the fame and worldwide tours, to when recessions and failing family businesses were his reality… 

Tune in as we follow Jason’s inspiring rise to fame as he becomes an overnight sensation, lives the glamorous life of a pop star, and how, with its abrupt end, he pivots to build a 3 property portfolio (and growing!).   

And did we mention, he flips a house earning him $400k…. tax-free?!?!?   

It’s true. Today’s episode will have you on the edge of your seat as we get a sneak peek at how much Australian pop stars really earn, see the TRUE value of transparent money conversations and the terrifying consequences of having a negative credit score (Seriously, tune in to 27:48 now folks).  

As always, today’s episode is another jaw-dropping story of perseverance, hard work and humility. 

 Give it a listen now or watch the Episode below!

Throughout the 200+ episodes that we’ve done in this show, we’ve discussed money management many times. In our own Money SMARTS System, we could not emphasize more on the importance of having a deep understanding of your cashflow position, setting up your 7-Day Float, setting up your direct debit and much more. It’s pretty obvious that we’re passionate about money management and this is not unique to us. Other experts such as Paul Clitheroe and Effie Zahos, have also shared their money management tips and their episodes are often being referred to as one of our very best!

But we still often get asked on the mechanics of the Money SMARTS and more of the money saving hacks that we’ve shared. How does it really work? How can we set it up? Do banks really offer these structures?

So… that is why, Bryce has decided to record this Video series to help explain some of the Money Saving Hacks that the Banks don’t want you to know about. There will be heaps of illustration and resource materials shared in this video series that can help you implement some of the hacks right away!

201 | Money Lessons for Kids

Today’s show is a special shout out to our parent-folk out there (and for those who might one day be one)! Heck, if you just want some foundation money management tips, you’ll find some golden nuggets here too!

What we’re about to unpacked is a framework-stacked episode featuring THE Money Lessons for Kids — more specifically, how to teach your kids about money! Because, let’s face it, money makes the world go ‘round… so if our young folk aren’t given a proper head start as to how it all works, their futures will be impacted. It really is as simple and as straightforward as that.

So, how do you work out when and how to teach them?

Well, with 2 young boys each, we’ve asked ourselves the same thing. We get it — trying to run a household, manage your own money AND make sure your kids grow up to be respectable, decent and bright humans is no easy task. Adding to that the necessity of teaching them about money so that they can, not only survive in the big wide world but actually thrive in it… well, even we could do with some insights!

That’s what we want to give YOU today (if you’ve got more tips to teach our own kids too, we’d love to know!)…


Before plunge into the murky waters of Money & Kids 101, here are a few bits of housekeeping and the free resources we mention in today’s show…

Oh, and because kids learn A LOT just by watching what you do (so the way you manage your own money really matters), here’s a shameless plug for our new book, Make Money Simple Again!

As Bryce mentioned, his TV show Escape from the City premiers on the 3rd of January 2018! So make sure you spare some time between the cricket to check it out! Just a heads up, he’ll personally be appearing on the show a few weeks later on the 31st January 😉


Here’s what you’ll learn from today’s episode…

198 | Nine Ways to Navigate the Credit Crunch

Folks, if you’re playing the long-term game in property investing, you’ve got to know how to navigate the credit crunch!

And what do we mean by this??

… You MUST build financial muscle in order to succeed at the game of lending! Because folks you can NOT save your way to a passive income. You just can’t.

What you need is access to credit and an ability to optimise this credit so that it works in your absolute best interest.

But of course, there’s an elephant in the room here, isn’t there??

The lending landscape has changed, folks! This can be seen from APRA’s lending restrictions all the way to the banks feeling the pressure following the Royal Commission — both of which are just the tip of the iceberg property investors are now facing when it comes to accessing finance.

So. Here we are at the messy middle…… how can YOU cut through these challenges and still get the lending results you need??

Well, we’ve got 9 Tips up our sleeve to help you do just this folks!!!
